Coca-Cola Thank You Fund offers €125,000 in Ireland

Howard Lake | 30 May 2015 | News

The Coca-Cola Thank You Fund, which will invest €125,000 in Ireland this year, is open for applications.
The Fund will support not-for-profit voluntary and charitable organisations operating within communities throughout the island of Ireland. Grants will be awarded to groups who have new ideas to get people moving through sport and activity-based programmes.
The Fund was launched in 2011 to mark Coca-Cola’s 125th anniversary and has run every year since. Over the past four years €500,000 has been donated to the Fund and distributed among 42 organisations.
In 2015 the Fund will again focus on one overall theme – ‘Awarding grants for new ideas to get people more active, more often.’

The aim is to distribute €125,000 in total amongst five not-for-profit, voluntary and charitable organisations which are encouraging their communities to get moving and live a more active healthy lifestyle.
The proposed project must exclusively benefit people aged over twelve years of age and it must be for a new project. The funding is not for initiatives already up and running.
Applications to the Coca-Cola Thank You Fund will only be accepted online between the 27th June and 29th June 2015.
